The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub.
110-161, approved December 26, 2007) allows funding for program coordinators under the HCV FSS program under section 23 of the United States Housing Act of 193 7. Through annual NOFAs, HUD has provided funding to public housing agencies
(PHAs) that are operating HCV FSS programs to enable those PHAs to employ program coordinators to support their HCV FSS programs.
In the Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 HCV FSS Program Coordinator NOFA, HUD is again making funding available to PHAs to employ HCV FSS program coordinators and HCV FSS homeownership program coordinators for one year.
Funding priority under this NOFA will be provided to applicants with Public Housing Information Center (PIC) data confirming that their FSS families have purchased homes and to applicants whose PIC data demonstrate program accomplishments, such as increased HCV FSS program size, increased earned income of program participants, and families successfully completing their FSS contracts.
HUD will accept applications from both new and renewal PHAs that have HUD approval to administer an HCV FSS program.
PHAs funded under the HCV FSS NOFA in FY 2005, FY 2006, or FY 2007 are considered renewal PHAs in this NOFA.
These renewal PHAs are invited to apply for funds to continue previously funded HCV FSS program coordinator and HCV FSS homeownership coordinator positions that they have filled.
